Consolidating blogs

I’m working on trying to consolidate all of my various blogs into one place…here!

Art of The West – The 25 Year Anniversary of The Autry Museum

The Autry Museum is the place to see wild west artifacts in Los Angeles. It’s celebrating it’s 25th anniversary this year, so they opened up a new wing. I was invited to the press preview, where the curator and several artists spoke.

The most fascinating talk was by the artist Virgil Ortiz. He creates clay figurines in New Mexico using…

Estate of Mind

My brother and I saw someone painting a stairwell. The stairwell led to a store. And the store led to one of the strangest places in Sydney named Estate of Mind.

We said hello to the boy at the check out desk. He was wearing 4” tall black boots, facial makeup, and a mesh shirt. But what made it most odd was how comfortable he was in his wild get up. 

Cartoonish paintings were still…

Outre Gallery

Melbourne & Sydney (Aus)

I hate it when galleries don’t allow photos. So I always make it a point to take them anyways and post them here. YAY!

Outre Gallery sells digital prints, small vinyl toys, and books. It is the only place I encountered in Sydney where you can see low-brow and pop surrealist art. Although, there aren’t any originals, since it’s all digital. 

For Travelers:

Outre Gallery is located in Surrey Hills, which is one of the hippest areas of Sydney, Australia. There are a bunch of cafes nearby to eat at and stores to check out. If you plan on visiting, keep in mind that Outre is more like a store than a gallery and so most of what you can find there is also online.

The Justice & Police Museum

The Justice & Police Museumwas awesome! It’s located in a former jailhouse and houses things like homemade weapons such as squeeze pistols and prison shanks. It’s also a great place to learn about the criminal history of Australia. Both in its founding stages as a country and later on as bushrangers (the Australian term for old west gunslingers) and serial killers…

Sculptural Graffiti in Darlinghurst – New South Wales (Australia)

I like encountering 3D street art. It’s always so unusually random. Like these two pieces on telephone poles in Darlinghurst. One had shoes and sandals drilled into it and the other had a bunch of flattened out bottle caps that were painted green and yellow hammered into it.

The bottle caps were actually kind of elegant. They made…

The Macleay Museum at The University of Sydney (Australia)

The Macleay Museum is a space filled with scientific oddities, like the skull of a cyclops horse and a tomahawk made from the head of a hornbill bird. It’s not too big of a space, but everything packs a punch. Plus, I think you can also book a special appointment to see even more than what’s on display, since it’s primarily a place for…

Orange County Museum of Art: The 2013 CALIFORNIA-PACIFIC TRIENNIAL Newport Beach, CA (USA)

This exhibit at the Orange County Museum of Art was cool. Mark Dean Veca painted a huge mural with testacle sculptures hanging from the ceiling and Danial Nord built an installation that made me feel like I was on a ride at Universal Studios. I’m not sure what the show was all about, but the art was great,…
